Is the 7.62 adequate deer cartridge? I know the actual slug is pretty big, but does it have the power?

    I have no idea why anyone would want to hunt with a 7.62x39 when thre are so many better cartridges. It is a round suited for the SKS and AK-47 and little else. Odd sized bullet, poor availability of quality ammo or brass, etc. Plenty of junk ammo out there for defense or gravel pit work.
